requests. it is in america's interests, along with our european and canadian allies, to forge strategic partnerships with arab nations as we move forward into this new era of change in the arab world. there are very specific re reasons, strategic regional concerns, and rationales as to why the united states will support this. we did not lead this. we will not engage in unilateral action in any way, but we strongly support the international community taking action against government and leaders who behave as gaddafi is unfortunately doing so now, and we think an international border that can bring about this kind of unity is very much in america's interest. >> you just said that conditions are unfolding that will create a new environment in which people will act, including those around colonel gaddafi. does that mean that you are in the sense -- in essence giving up on trying to remove colonel gaddafi? we're aiming the message at all of the decision makers inside libya. the opposition is largely led by those who defected from the gaddafi regime or who formerly served ait. it is certainly
